Today is one of those days I can’t help but reflect a bit. With so much going on, and the addition to our family coming very soon, I have one word on my mind.
I am thankful this pregnancy has been pretty smooth sailing. The baby and I have both been healthy the entire time, with the only hiccups coming late at night as I feel them in my belly.
I am thankful I have such an excited, supportive husband who is just as thrilled as I am to meet this little person.
I am thankful I’ve been able to stay active this entire pregnancy, and have had the support of my doctors and family to do so.
I am thankful that both my sister Emily and my sister in law Morgan are here and can celebrate the birth of the baby in person.
I am thankful the baby is still in my belly. My body is performing a true miracle, growing this baby like a champ. Even though I am super anxious to meet him or her, knowing the baby is full term and doing amazing is a fantastic feeling. Would I like to be holding him or her right now instead of the computer – sure. But it will happen soon enough, when he or she is ready.
I am thankful to have the experience to even carry a child, as I know many women struggle and can not have the experience in the same way.
I am thankful the baby will be born into a world of such amazing friends and support. The people who surround me each and every day are truly a blessing.
